Maximum Recommend Create volume on Dell EqualLogic Storage

Hi,

Currently, we are using  Dell EqualLogic Storage PS4100 and Dell EqualLogic Storage PS6100. The EqualLogic Group Manager version is 7.0.

What is the maximum recommended volume to create for the share drive?

Kindly advise on this matter.

Thank you in advance.

Hello, 

 There is no recommended size, the maximum possible volume size on an EQL array is 15TB.

You should Update your EQL to FW 9.1.x or 10.x together with the Drive FW 13.x

Hello, 

 Also is you need more than 15TB, you can use mount points to create a larger effective space.  Striping 15TB volumes is another option.  In Linux LVM can create a larger space out of smaller volumes as well.
